TOWN OF AMSTERDAM -- An 80-year-old Amsterdam woman was airlifted to Albany Medical Center Friday morning following a one-car accident.

At 8:28 a.m. Friday, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department, along with the Greater Amsterdam Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Cranesville Fire Department, responded to the call of a two-car motor vehicle accident near Widow Susan Road, said sheriff's Investigator Rob Gracia.

But when deputies arrived, Gracia said, they found out it was only a one-car accident.

The investigator said that Anna Dalessandro was traveling south on Widow Susan Road in the town of Amsterdam, when her car crossed over Chapman Drive, ran over the guardrail and embankment, and landed on Route 5.

She was driving a 1996 gray Chevrolet Monte Carlo sedan, he said.

No other cars were impacted on State Route 5.

Though the investigator said it was still unclear what exactly caused the accident, they do not believe that speed was a factor.

Gracia said when he asked Dalessandro where she was heading, she told him she was on her way to Price Chopper.

He said medical personnel were concerned with internal injuries, as her blood pressure was low.

Dalessandro was airlifted from the scene to Albany Medical Center.

As of Friday evening, Albany Medical Center personnel said she was in listed as being in fair condition.
